    I kind of like this. There's lots of good fan logos. Why do I feel like these will all be better than the final product? I hope theDolphins release all the designs after the final one is unveiled. Be interesting to see what didn't make it.

    I don't like it at all. Meaningless orange polylline underneath the logo. Makes no sense.

    No thanks.

    For the life of me I don't know why some of you would want to add such a dreary and gloomy color to what is a vibrant team color scheme.

    One of the submissions to the Herald's logo revision contest.
    I passed over a ton and this one just grabbed me.

    Colours are bang on but...

    The logo is a mixture of the Buffalo Bills and the old Buffalo Sabres 'slug" logo. Pass.

    It's not really adding a color scheme. It's neutral, a lot of teams do it. Such as the Colts, 49ner's, Cardinals off the top of my head, I just think it makes the helmet look better.

    I wonder if Mike Dee is just saying that so people will still be excited to see it.

    For me, I think that part of it is a throwback to the glory days of the team. They had a grey facemask in the 1970s. It's been purported that the Dolphins are mixing the classic look with the modern logo, and uniform, and I think that really fits. The Giants, Colts, 49ers, and Bills have all done so. Personally I think it looks good (see Thanksgiving game in Dallas with Ricky Williams and Chris Chambers blowing out Dallas).

    I like the colors and the facemask. The logo itself feels too cartoony to me, not classic enough. I also don't like the slug feel. I think the logo should include the tail. But there's some potential to that design.

    Update on new logo

    Mike Dee also said "the change is not major and the sun and dolphin elements will remain, though less cartoonish"

    I think that most likely means the logo will be more stylized and probably has no helmet. I also think it will be a full dolphin rather than one of the slug type logos. I think that it will be very close to the prototype that was leaked. It won't be exact so Dee can say "the actual logo was never leaked", but it will be close to that one.

    See I don't because that's a major change. I see the position staying the same

    I think the logo will be the leaked one, with the only difference being the dolphin will be in the classic pose.

    My guess is that the pose will be changed to the leaked one but with the tail down.

    I disagree. Any difference is a matter of perspective. It's easy to point at any change from the leaked prototype and say, "see it's different". And in all other respects, "classic", "keeps the sun", "less cartoony", it fits.

    No offense Rev, but that's about one of the worst designs I've seen yet. :thumbdown:

    Of course, that probably means that's what they'll choose. :sad:

    Mike Dee wasn't particularly specific.

    This is probably the hardest thing to overcome in the field of graphic design and that's understanding words are used to describe nebulous concepts to the designer or from the designer.

    For example, blue. I ask my clients what's their favorite color, and the majority say blue. That seems cut and dry..straight question, straight answer. Yet which blue?

    That's not even a drop in the bucket of the different blues, btw.

    well he did say also that it would contain an orange sunburst, so that will remain a feature. He hinted it might be closer to the 1966 logo than what we have now. TIFWIW....

    As I tell my folks, if we all like the same thing this would be a very boring existence.

    Sort of like that ancient Charlie Chaplin movie... Modern times.

    That is also at the root of why communism (in it's purist form, not the totalitarian state form) always fails.

    You're right in that sense. It's all a matter of perspective.
    I just think when Dee says the changes are minor, it leads me to believe the pose and whatnot will remain the same. Possible wishful thinking on my part, I know.
